I've finally decided to lose the pesky 15 pounds I've gained over the past few years. I've been making some progress but diet foods can get really boring, very quickly. I love fruits and veggies, but now that it's Fall I'm craving warm, comfort foods. Like soup! Thankfully Progresso™ soup has 40 delicious flavors at 100 calories or less per serving and that has really helped me to beat diet boredom!

Here are my top 10 ways To Beat Diet Boredom.

1. Plan ahead. That way you have time to make sure that what you will be eating are things you like. 

2. Eat often. Instead of 3 big meals have 5 small ones. I've been having a Progresso™ Light soup with only 100 calories and it's really helped me stay on track. 

3. It's okay to snack. Fruit makes the perfect snack to bring with you. When you eat often you never get hungry and it makes dieting so much better.

4. Serve your food on plates and bowls you really like. Pick out some special dishes that you really love and make each meal more fun by using them to serve your food!

5. Add some sparkling water with a touch of fruit to your diet. Having a special drink makes dieting even better!

6. Think variety. With 40 varieties to choose from Progresso Light Soups will keep you from getting bored with the same old thing. Plus they all really taste good!


7. Get support. Find a diet buddy to share your triumphs and challenges with.

8. Try new foods. Be open to trying new, healthy items.

9. Keep it simple. Soup for lunch with a piece of fruit is a simple, easy and delicious way to keep your diet from being boring.

10. Spices are your friends. Experiment with different spice flavors instead of using high calorie seasonings. 


I have really found having a Progresso™ Light Soup to be a huge help in me being able to keep the diet boredom away.

I just tried the Savory Beef Barley Vegetable and the Creamy Chicken Alfredo with Pasta. I really liked them both, but the Creamy Chicken Alfredo was phenomenal. It was so creamy and I loved the noodles. Although I like to mix it up and have different soups everyday, I think this these two will be favorites that I'll have more often.

I also love that I can take it with me.

We often go to family members house's for dinner and instead of having something I shouldn't, I just have a can of yummy Progresso™ Light soup. This helps me stay on track and not get bored because I can still eat with everyone else and stick with my diet.

  1. Great tips! Since I’m so busy, I sometimes struggle with planning ahead – that’s why I love Progresso Soup’s Light line of soups!

  2. Great Tips! I know trying something new is definitely a good tip for me. I have tried a diet and did good on it at first but then I started getting tired of eating the same old foods. I began eating the old food that wasn’t the best for me.

  3. I’m going to start jazzing up my water with fresh fruit – that sounds tasty and I’ll have more fun increasing my daily water intake. I’ve always wanted to do watermelon water.

  4. I love these soups but when I go on a diet, I like to make it count. Not sure canned soup is good with all the sodium? This is definitely great with some crackers or nice piece of bread though!

  5. These are great tips. It is really important to remember to make sure you have a variety and a game plan. Also keeping healthy snacks on hand is important. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I’ve had some Progresso soups before. I agree about the 5 smaller meals. Eating more often but tinier servings help to keep your metabolism going.

  7. Me and the family love having soup for dinner during these colder months. Thank you fro the great tips. I need to put some of these into my daily life right now.

  8. Great tips. I love Progresso Soups. I didn’t know they were making light versions now. I’ll have to check them out. Thanks for letting me know.
